“The game was about 70 minutes in and Leeds were having loads of chances but wasting them all,” Berry told reporters. That’s when he tweeted a downtrodden promise to immortalize striker Tyler Roberts eating ice cream with a tattoo on his rear end in the unlikely event they scored.
A goal “isn’t happening,” he despaired, but happen it did. That put Leeds in “the top of the Championship” after “leveling the scores” in “the Equaliser”…? Those are contradictory terms, and soccer is weird, y’all.
